Is Carrot Cake Better With Oil Or Butter?
Carrot cake is oil-based, not a butter-based cake. Cakes made using oil stay moist and soft for longer. Vegetable oils will give the cake a better texture, as the butter will solidify.
Can I Make Carrot Cupcakes Using This Recipe?
Yeah. Using this recipe, instead of making a whole cake, you can also prepare 20-24 cupcakes. Bake cupcakes at 350 °F for 15-18 minutes. You can check whether the cakes are cooked by doing the toothpick test.
How to Store Carrot Cake?
How you store the carrot cake depends on the ingredients. If you don't use cream frosting, it will last 1-2 days at room temperature. If you are using cream, it should be stored in the refrigerator. After the carrot cake cools, it will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator. However, storing at room temperature is not an ideal method for carrot cake. For the best preservation of the cake and cream, we recommend keeping it in the refrigerator.
- Refrigerator: To store this cake in the refrigerator, allow the cake to cool if freshly baked. Then wrap it with cling film and place it in an airtight container. Put it in a cool, dark place in the refrigerator that is not prone to moisture.
- Freezer: If you are making a carrot cake without using cream, freezing it would be ideal. The texture of the cream-covered cake may deteriorate when frozen. To store the cake in the freezer, wait for the cake to cool. Then wrap with cling film and place in freezer storage bags. This way it will last for 3-4 months.
You can also prepare this recipe a day in advance. After baking the cake, cool it at room temperature. Then leave it overnight in the refrigerator. Let stand at room temperature before serving.
